Farewell Speech Sample

Aslaam-o–Alekum. My name is Minahil Meher and I would like to say a few words about my experience here at AH Foundation.

“Special needs” are commonly defined by what a child can’t do — by milestones unmet, activities avoided and experiences denied. These minuses hit families hard, and may make “special needs” seem like a tragic designation. But here at AH Foundation I have learnt that the aim is to find the underlying strengths of these children that will not only help them excel in certain fields but will also help them grow into a more respected part of society.

Many people spend their whole lives wondering what their purpose in life is, whether they have a greater calling, something bigger than themselves or not. We may still not be a 100% sure as to what our mission is, but what we do know for sure is that the time we’ve spent here was part of our ultimate mission or goal of life. We have helped the children reach their fullest potential, found a way to comfort and calm them, battled on behalf of their rights, making everyday of our working lives a form of a personal crusade.

We not only accepted the children for who they are, but we embraced them whole-heartedly as if they were our very own. It is true that “with great power, comes great responsibility” and though we may not be superheroes we have tried to protect these children from every harm and catered for their every need.

I have realized that working with a special child brings with it abundant opportunities for grace. It slows you down and allows you to enjoy the little things; a hard won skill, a tight hug, a pleasant conversation and spontaneous displays of love. I have learnt how to do research, find information and understand what specialists are talking about. And I have learnt through hard experience that you cannot wait for the answers to come to you, and that if you don’t go out and find them, things are never going to get done.

It is often said by people who mean well that working with children with special needs “requires the patience of a saint.” It is not true. What it does require is human compassion; something more of us have than we seem ready to acknowledge. If there was a growth chart for us internees it would represent our doubt in our abilities to handle such an overwhelming challenge and how with time we have managed to reach greater percentiles by gaining control of the situations we have faced everyday.

Maybe at one time, we were probably at the bottom of the chart, but with time we passed the first percentile, then the 5th; growing a little steadier, then the 10th; growing a little stronger. Somewhere around the 50th, 60th percentile we found acceptance of the children’s debilities and were able to enjoy their unique gifts. As we grew in knowledge of and advocacy for their special needs we also grew in patience, tolerance and spirituality.

These three weeks at AH Foundation have been challenging but being able to successfully work with the special children and create within their little hearts love for us, has made our triumph even sweeter. With help from the teaching staff, administration and fellow volunteers our journey here was made an absolute delight. I would like to thank Dr. Ayesha and Mrs. Firdous for giving all of us the opportunity to not only gain experience by working with these blessed children, but also the opportunity to grow. We can now walk out of this building with our heads held high, but only to return and give back a lot more than what we have received.


Sample Speech for Farewell day

Sample speech for farewell day at school of any level. This speech is for volunteers who worked in a school of special education or done social work with special children.

Farewell Day Speech Sample

Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man. – Rabindranath Tagor. As Rabindranath Tagor Said Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man. Every child here at AH Foundation tells his own story. A story of different beginnings but a similar message.

On my first day, when I first had the glimpse of the children on the ground floor all I said to myself was ‘’ ya main kahan agaya houn’’. I sort of regretted volunteering for this. In front of me stood a huge challenge of partly parenting these little children who were deprived of certain capabilities that made them special. And me? I felt weak at the thought of handling them, completely inexperienced in the Child management department of life.

This world was an entirely different world then. All I could see were the dependent children who couldn’t talk and walk properly. The children saw me as an intruder in their lands. I was just like a visitor trapped in a jungle.

As the days passed, and I have to add here, they flew by, I matured as a person. And I must say, this experience has been memorable. It is immensely difficult to form a bond of love and understanding with these children. I tried my level best in giving the deserving children here my hundred percent, socializing with as many kids as possible, striving to make the events held here frequently more enjoyable for them. Yes, the crazy Baa Baa Baa Baaaa Sheep was me. So was the the crazy red hand with the sheep in the small puppet show arranged by this Institute.

I also took part in the physical exercises for the children, and I have to praise AH Foundation for having these healthy activities going around, keeping the students Active. I taught Wajahat the fun of Hand cricket, I instigated Nakaash’s inner rock-star, I figured out how to make Shiza sit calmly so someone could tie her shoe, I let Usman practice his interviewing skills on me… though I need to get back at him for that. And not to forget the very successful bake-sale with my team and the whole Resource Development sector. That surely was a success story, and I must thank my BSc ki Baajiyaan from KC for making it boom, and the students of AH Foundation and fellow Interns for emptying their pockets on the food. Hats off to you!

Frankly, I did learn more from the children than they learned from me. I developed my coping skills with them; I learned how to deal with kids, how to make them understand, and how to understand them. These speechless souls have a lot of speak. It is just that it takes time to understand their language. With the days I have spent in AH Foundation, I have tried my level best to understand each and every child that I could acquaint with. I can proudly say, thanks to these amazing children here, I’m a more tolerant, caring, thankful, understanding and mature person now. And you know what more they taught me? That blessings do not mean having money or clothes or anything, it is being born and raised normal.

I wouldn’t forgive myself if I leave out the very friendly, very social staff of the AH Foundation. I could have never done anything if I hadn’t been with the efforts and support of Miss.Safiya and the teaching staff. They made this road trip easier, guiding me at every step, teaching me the techniques of managing these special souls, giving us all such a homely environment to work in.

Lastly I would wish AH Foundation all the best for the future in helping the special children open up to the World. I know I’m going to miss this place a lot, and it’s been a big high-light of my life. Thank you.

Farewell Party Speech Sample 1

Good morning and AOA ladies and Gentlemen

As my internship in AH Foundation comes to an end, it was pleasure to be a part of this organization and its workforce. During my time as an internee here I managed to have many great experiences, which will always stay with me and also help me in my career. After my exams I wanted to do something as most universities require these kinds of extracurricular work. At that time everyone forced me to do an internship where you get money.

When I applied in AH Foundation, people discouraged me due to their different perspective related to internship. The experience of interning at AH Foundation is unique and very interesting. Motivation in every single child cannot be described in words. The talent of every child is worth appreciating and which this makes them way better than, who we are right now. I learnt a lot working in this organization and from these extra ordinary kids- I learned to be focused, more determine and most importantly how to stay happy even when all the reason of staying happy are dead. They smile on every child’s face is so overwhelming and motivating which encourages me to forget all the hardships in life.

I wish I could share more of my experiences but for now I’d like to sum up my speech by saying that no matter how life treats us there’s always a reason to stay happy.

Thank you,

Farewell Speech by Internees 2

My experience at AH Foundation has been an eye opener as I came to this institute with a different perception and expectation. My interest in working with these children brought me here. I was amazed by seeing these children working so hard on their talents and skills so they could be independent and give back to the society they are living in. Also the facilities that this institute provide is remarkable and app laudable.

This institute’s pure intentions of enhancing these children’s skills and talents has brought the children to such a place that they are not only recognized in Pakistan, but internationally as well. My experience here at AH Foundation has been amazing. Helping these children in any way I was the intention I came here with. I’m glad I’ve somewhat achieved that through giving some of my time here to these children . I’m taking back with me good memories and these children’s beautiful smiles. Thank you AH Foundation for giving me this opportunity, which I will remember for the rest of my life.

Internship Program Farewell Speech

Ladies and Gentlemen AOA,

Today this journey finally ends, but we all are taking some wonderful memories with us. This was my 2nd year here and as I stepped into this institution a wave of nostalgia hit me, sending me back to the time when I was awarded the best intern and I felt greater responsibility rested on my shoulders, I had to prove myself better than last year. This year the people I had to work with were total strangers but I am glad that by the end I was able to form a bond of friendship with them due to their immense support throughout our journey together.

I would like to thank a few people with whom I got a chance to work with. First of all I would like to thank Miss Fatima and Miss Ramia for their support. Thank you Miss Majida, your smiling face always motivated us to work  in this hot weather. Thanks Miss Aana for helping us in classroom activities and thanks to all my fellow interns for being so helpful, specially Fatima and Hafsa.

Lastly I would like to add that I did this internship not only for a certificate but because I wanted to experience life. By working with these special children I have concluded that life is not a bed of roses. We all should learn how to smile from them, for you would never miss a face without one. Learn hard work from them for each piece that they create is not less than a masterpiece.

As much as it breaks my heart but it is the time to say adios. I am leaving with a countless cherish-able memories that would occupy me throughout my life. Today when I would go through these doors for the last time, I would not be alone; I would be leaving behind some precious bonds and take with me a countless cherish able memories that I would adore for the rest of my life.

Thank you.

Speech by Volunteer in a Social Organization

Dear Audience,

The AH Foundation has an illustrious background and history that has been rooted in Pakistan’s past. This distinguishing institution has stood for the past 10 years extending loyalty, generosity and services to the common man and those that are considered special.

The AH Foundation aims at rehabilitating and facilitating those mentally and physically disabled. Over the 10 years, this institution has been successfully carrying out its operations.

We have come across a number of NGOs that have carved out prevalence among these is ‘ NEED FOR THE NEEDY’ run by students from BDC, founded by Ayza Ishaque, Shazeb Qamar, Hamza Ijaz and Shazeb Awan. Over the summers they have donated sums exceeding 50,000 Rs and offering their services for social betterment.

We would like to state here that the members of this NGO were awarded a number of shields and numerous certificates. To signify their relation with AH Foundation. Overall, working with ‘NEED FOR THE NEEDY’ was an inspiration and a source of hope that there are people out there who are willing to make a change.

Party Speech for Farewell Day

Asalam o alaikum.

So here’s the start to my 5 minutes of speech time. Before I begin I promise I’ll try making it as less boring as possible :

To begin with, I’ll present my gratitude to Mr and Mrs Abdul Salam for presenting us with such an opportunity to be so close to these children and put our energies together to help these children.

There are two kinds of people in this world. Ones who are ever so sure about themselves and their lives and what they’re supposed to be. Then comes the other kind. Ones unsure. Clueless of what to be? Where to be? What to do in life and how to get there? I’m one of that sort. And I’m sure there are too many of that kind in the crowd right now.

Hi and cheers to You. The first day I stepped in this building I could only scratch my head and think what am I gonna do here. But like life goes around, things fell in place and to this day, we have achieved something. Done something, individually, collectively. Something that gives us the feeling of contentment when we lay in our beds comfortably at night. Satisfaction of doing good.

We are from the resource department. Our job is to collect funds. Funds enough to fend and feed a child through out an entire year. To manage his expenses. And for that goal we have put in all our efforts.

Through the span of two weeks, we’ve interacted bonded and made friends with all the groups. And in all that, we managed to pull of a major event collectively with the music society on the 11th of this month.

The Bake sale/Concert was indeed a success and it couldn’t have been done with the tireless effort of the management teams. Before addressing to them with a thank you, I’d rather tell you how much we generated from this fund raiser event. A total of 25 thousand was made by the end of the day, which is said to be better off then the previous years.

Now to the much promised thanking business I had to do. To begin with, Faizan. Thank you so much for being right besides me through the whole thing. You are indeed a tremendous guitarist and a great person!

Moving on, I thank my entire team for their hard work, and tolerance and patience they’ve shown in many cases when I was too demanding or pushy.

Thank you,

Name 1

Name 2

Name 2

And a very special thank you to this one person who has been My support the entire time through this event hosting. And frankly without her management of the event would’ve been too hard. Alina Rasheed, who has been my right hand in all the management. It would have been a mess without you, so much thanks to you.

I would also like to add about, Sachar Bakes, which is a bakery owned by my friend. They made outstanding contributions with giving us free food for the sale. Only their contributions alone generated a mere 5.5 thousand. So a round of applause for them. They are situated in phase 5 right behind Jalal sons if you Wish to pay them a visit.

Lastly I’d like to thank miss saima and sir sami ullah for having our backs.

In all, this internship has brought us all closer to humanity and Bourne within our hearts is the kindness for these kids. This experience has indeed made us a much better person. Everyone deserves love and affection. Everyone needs to be cared for. In this institution, those very grounds are met every day. So I solute the efforts of teachers who teach here. To the interns who’ve worked here. God bless you people. And God bless these kids.

I shall conclude my speech now. I’m sorry if it got too dry. Have a nice day everyone 🙂

Speech for Farewell Day

Dear Audience,

Truth to be told AH Foundation was not my first priority this summer, but now i am glad it happened when it did. AH Foundation taught everyone something, for some people it was even getting up early at 8 30 or for some it was loving children. The routine that we’re all set on will be hard to forget.

Get up early, rush to AH Foundation half asleep, meet all your friends, make new friends, and then the most important part meeting the children. Ill forget everything but I will not forget umar who just wouldn’t stay still, shiza the cutest little girl, ali who always thirsty, shayan, maryam and of course M.Ali. first few days we hated everyone like literally hated everyone because it was so hot. But then I think everyone realized that they weren’t alone dealing with the heat.

People say that this years internee’s were boring but they don’t realize is that we used to work all day till 2 and then party outside 😀 . which brings me to the friends I made these 2 weeks. From BDC KC, AC, Alma, LAS and a few more who’s schools I still don’t know. These friends I assure you aren’t those who you forget soon, not at all. And that brings me to thanking the admin. All this couldn’t or wouldn’t had been possible without the admin. The admin which had the mrs saima and the very polite mr. samiullah.

They were very helpful and cooperative throughout the whole program. Also the lecture by Dr. Naeem was an eye opener with regard to child abuse and finally thanks to uncle and aunty who started this school and offered us this platform where memories were made which will not be forgotten and hopefully after this internship there will be more uncles and aunties in the society to help these children.
